Do not take away the gift of adoption

Please do not attack good foster care and adoption agencies.  We need to embrace and support the agencies that provide good parents for children in need.

If you did take this gift away, the message of exclusion that you would send to children with strong religious identities, as well as to potential foster and adoptive parents would be unconscionable and destructive.

The state of Virginia Social Services has no right to impose this strange new morality on other people, to the detriment of the neediest children in our state.
